Video: Chanel Fall 2013 Film “Women Only” by Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld has once again made a fashion film — “Women Only” — to launch the most recent collection soon to hit boutiques, the Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/14 pre-collection. He cleverly uses his previous film “Once Upon a Time”, featuring Keira Knightley as Coco Chanel, as the backdrop for “Women Only”. Karl chose the obscurity of a Parisian cinema as the set and we see models stroll in – individually and in pairs – all wearing head to to Chanel.

I think “Women Only” is one of Karl’s best fashion films – it’s just another medium for us to see the gorgeous Chanel creations in a different light – rather than just staring at stills. “Women Only” does a beautiful job of highlighting the Chanel collection – I’m convinced, I want it all!

Soundtrack:
Title: “Brid”
Artist: HTB
Label: Pop Noire

Video: Chanel Fall 2013 Superstition Makeup Collection

I love this video for the Chanel Fall 2013 Superstition makeup collection. I saw it on the Chanel website and was hoping it would be on YouTube. Chanel always does a wonderful job of paying tribute to the legacy and codes that Coco Chanel left us.

Video: “Once Upon A Time” Trailer with Keira Knightley as Coco Chanel

The internet has been abuzz with the news that Karl Lagerfeld chose Keira Knightley to play Coco Chanel in an upcoming short fashion film and the trailer is now here! Entitled “Once Upon A Time” the short film features Keira Knightley as Coco Chanel as a young designer at her first boutique in Deauville, France. French film actress Clotilde Hesme is also in “Once Upon A Time” and I’m guessing she plays Coco Chanel’s aunt Adrienne.

The full film will be posted on http://www.chanel-news.com on May 8th at the same time as its premiere in Singapore, the destination chosen by Karl Lagerfeld for his upcoming Cruise fashion show.

Soundtrack:
Ah! Finalmente!
Extract from “Tosca”

Archival Video Footage of Coco Chanel’s 1932 Diamond Exhibit

Discovered by the CHANEL Direction du Patrimoine in the Pathé-Gaumont cinematographic archives, this film presents the “Bijoux de Diamants” exhibit held from November 7th-19th, 1932 at Gabrielle Chanel’s apartment 29 Faubourg Saint Honoré in Paris. Broadcasted before the feature movies in every French cinema, it was a prominent event in French news in November 1932.

I love seeing the archival footage of the original exhibit in Coco Chanel’s own home!
